    I worked at Avago Technologies full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very successful company, with a hint of the old HP/Agilent culture. Sharp engineers. Although "fabless", still has Fab's, in CO even. Solid focus on quality.

    Cons

    People work very hard and long, as is typical with any companies involved with consumer electronics. With the big companies driving their business comes big pressure for performance price and delivery.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Storage Software Engineering at Avago / LSI Logic

    Current Employee - Firmware Development Engineer in Colorado Springs, CO
    Current Employee - Firmware Development Engineer in Colorado Springs, CO

    I have been working at Avago Technologies full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Avago purchased LSI Logic Storage group in 2014. LSI front office management, marketing and architecture team was let go, resulting in a relatively flat management organization. That's a plus. OEM customer business remains strong. Engineers are involved in key projects for the biggest names in the server market. New Avago upper management (the CEO) is very engaged and supportive of LSI products and projects. Budgets are realistic; you can purchase what you need to do your job.

    Cons

    Product schedules are very aggressive, but realistically targeted to OEM and industry product releases. Typically driven by Intel futures. Quality management and software metrics are unfortunately driven to excess, often counter productive. Software tool infrastructure is often too restrictive as well. Needs to be replaced with modern tools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It remains to be seen how LSI benefits will change when merged with Avago benefits in 2015. Eyes are watching.

    Continue to lead with the interest of share holder while taking care

    I have been working at Avago Technologies

    Pros

    Great opportunities to learn about new technology and engineering development process. Refine skills in data acquisition and test fixture design.

    Cons

    After the a massive downsizing effort for the past few years, my internship was only offered with part time hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is very knowledgeable on project progress and status. They are all very friendly and laid back when it comes to managing the work that needs to be completed.There is probably no issues on management side.
